Each year, the best books of poetry published in English internationally and in Canada are honoured with the Griffin Poetry Prize, one of the world's most prestigious and richest literary awards. Since 2001 this annual prize has tremendously spurred interest in and recognition of poetry, focusing worldwide attention on the formidable talent of poets writing in English and works in translation.
